I just checked our archives. As I said in my frist answer, using the
content is legal but it will make the program look strange.

I mean: Just imageing to open a conference program to find, dunno, an
opinon piece about marketing GNOME! Or an app review! Don't you think
that'll be strange? The most appropriate content are the deployment

However. I just talked to Lucas Rocha. He's glad to help organizing and
coordinating new articles, dedicated to more appropriate topics around

He already submitted a paper for GUADEC about the GNOME Journal so that
fits very nicely. :-)

But if we can't find writers, I suggest to simply use the GUADEC
